So, you’ve found out that you can create an online business and make money if you just submit articles. Free directories are more than happy to approve content, you thus spread the word about your website, and make profit from advertising and product promotion. Sounds simple, doesn’t it? Well, although article marketing is not that difficult to put into practice, you should still not take things lightly. There is plenty of work involved before you can turn articles into links to your website. Start by asking yourself the following questions:
Can I provide valuable web content?
Where should I submit articles first?
How can I improve my articles?
Do I need a budget?
Although the Internet cannot exist without web pages, the same thing can be asserted about links. In fact links matter most for people who submit articles free of charge, in the hope of improving relevant traffic. Web developers are often authors too. This means that you write the materials you afterwards submit. This is an ongoing occupation, because you constantly have to come up with new materials to push the margins of your business further and reach more websites with backlinks.
Links are incorporated in the content of the article or included at the end of it in the resource box. This by-line is the most important aspect of article marketing because it reaches far on the Internet. When you submit articles, free directories ask you to fill some forms. Then, the content is checked for originality so as to prevent duplication. Sometimes there are special rules related to the number of links allowed, the length of the articles, the keyword density and the format.
There are plenty of mistakes you can make when trying your hand at article marketing for the first time. Inexperienced newbies will often create too high keyword density hoping to improve their status with search engines. Yet, they will just manage to look spammy. Read a few suggestions on article writing so as to polish your skill and improve your knowledge.
Submit articles free of charge but be careful where you submit them. There are hundreds of article directories on the Internet and more appear every day. In case you rely on an automatic tool to perform the submission task, the program will constantly update the list of directories available, but the truth is that it is not always worth working with all of them. Sometimes, constant submission of high quality articles to ten or twenty top directories values more.
